These intricate recycled button portraits are the creations of artist Lisa Kokin. Kokin has taken the concept of 'reduce, reuse, recycle' to a whole new level.

Created much like a mosaic, these recycled button portraits look like pixelated art from a distance. Only when viewed at close range do you finally see the individuality of each piece in the portrait. Lisa Kokin will be presenting her recycled button portraits at a Paris button-centric art exhibition in June 2010. Stats for Recycled Button Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
